Think About What You Need
As you consider various divorce attorneys, one of the first questions you should ask yourself is, "what tone do I anticipate my oncoming divorce to take on?"
For example, a contentious divorce in which both parties have an "eye for an eye" mentality towards divorce-related processes like property division, a lawyer who can take a more aggressive stance towards defending your rights may be useful.
Alternatively, if you and your ex are amicable with one another, more compassionate legal representation that can streamline the divorce process may be more helpful.
A good divorce lawyer should be capable of adjusting to your needs as your case proceeds and representing you in various circumstances, but considering your needs before making a choice is vital.
Interview Potential Attorneys
Most divorce lawyers offer free or relatively cheap consultations. Before you hire an attorney for your case, you should hold interviews with the lawyers you're considering for your case.
How well you get along with your attorney can also play a significant role in your case. Finding an attorney you get along with enables you to feel more relaxed about your case's trajectory and have a more comfortable relationship with your legal counsel.
Ask Your Attorney what Role the Divorce Plays in Their Practice
Knowing what role divorce plays in a lawyer's practice helps you know what to expect from your attorney.
For example, only some lawyers are comfortable handling more complex divorce cases, such as those that involve valuable assets, LGBTQ+ divorce, etc. Ask prospective attorneys what kinds of divorce cases they're comfortable with, and go over the details of your case with them to determine whether they're fully comfortable handling your case.
